Drowsy Maggie, Toss the Feathers


Published August 19, 1937


Fiddle solo, unknown - piano, Decca 12138. Drowsy Maggie was a popular tune in the old days. A third part is sometimes played, which is occasionally credited to a modern musician, but which actually seems to be traditional - Dublin piper Seamus Ennis had it, for instance, and if anyone stuck to the traditional it was him. Patsy Touhey recorded both of these reels on cylinders, and the first on one of his 78s as well. Toss the Feathers he called the Kerry Reel, and played it in D, which seems to be the usual key in old books. Killoran plays it in E minor, which is equally common now.
